Sentimental Saturday:) Sunsets, Sonnets and Such

31 May

“I find myself becoming increasingly nostalgic for the past, but after all I suppose that is the only thing one can be nostalgic about.”

― James Rozoff

*************

I am nothing, if not a product of my sentimentality. I love my art, my writing, my poetry, my family, and friends. I surround myself with constant reminders and memories of the people and things that I love. I display gifts and keepsakes from friends and family all over my house.

That last few days, when I open my Facebook page, the first thing I see is that page of memories, so nicely provided. There to greet me is the beautiful face of my angel mother, now smiling from heaven. What a great way to start my day.

Another memory came up of a sunset and a short poem I wrote about the photo. When I saw that sky, all I could think of was that it looked like a red velvet ribbon, and therefore required a poem for such a lofty poetic thought. Not quite a sonnet, but close.

Here are a few more recent sunsets. Perhaps they are in need of some lofty thoughts and poetry. Feel free to give it a try.

This one cries out… “wispy tangerine sky.”

Happy Sentimental Saturday, my friends. ❤️

    Sunsets are kind of beyond words, it seems to me. There is something about each one that begs to be shared immediately. When we can, we call to someone, “Wow, the sunset is gorgeous today! Come take a look!”

      I try and get out EVERY evening to capture the amazing sunset. It’s my reward for making it through another day.
